"I’m familiar withTunisia, its society, its history, its people and here where I am now, I can count on the friendship and the affection of many friends with whom I shared experiences and also common struggles. I can count on the affection of many young people that I have seen growing up and many others who have supported me in these years and have helped me getting through hard times and have always generously supported me".

"In these conditions, if on the one hand I thank God that I am still alive, on the other hand, I continue to live as I can, defending my freedom and my life, because I think it’s all the same according to a way of thinking settled and crystal clear in my mind". Bettino Craxi
"The Amphitheater is a huge monument that stands out in its greatness on the many small buildings on a floor surrounding it. Its facade is majestic and in every detail it clearly stands out its classic simplicity. It stands on three floors and its golden color immediately recalls the Colosseum in Rome."
In the last century El-Djem and it’s Colosseum were the scene of a revolt by the local population against the fiscal reform of the Bey of Tunis. The revolt was suffocated in blood and the Bey of Tunis demolished a wing of the amphitheater so it could never be used again in the future for other revolts
"Not being able to go to Rome and see the beauty of the Colosseum, in my Tunisian exile, when I go to El-Djem, were I feell at home again"
